THE AUSSIES HAVE CHANGED

By Pete Moore On July 9th, 2019

1989: Australian batsman David Boon sets the record for the most beers on a Sydney-London flight, necking 52 of them.

Fast forward to 2019:

The Australian cricket team walked barefoot around Edgbaston in an attempt to capture “positive energy coming out of the earth” before their World Cup semi-final against England on Thursday.

Led by their coach Justin Langer, who describes himself as a hippie, the players then gathered in a circle and told each other personal stories, shoes and socks still removed.

Stone the crows, I almost feel sorry for them. I never thought I’d say this, but I miss the old straight-up, sledging, beer-drinking Aussie. I can’t take a woke Aussie.

  1. the players then gathered in a circle and told each other personal stories, shoes and socks still removed.

    Sounds like something the All Blacks would do.

  2. Ah they were just trying to trigger British snowflakes, and in Pete’s case they succeeded 😱

  3. Colm.

    LOL. That’s true mate but to be fair, triggering Pete it’s like shooting fish in a barrel. He gets triggered by things most people don’t even give a second thought.

  4. Chopper got there before you.

    Years ago he was telling the world that Aussie rugby has to harden the fuck up.

    Good link. I miss Chopper.

    They will still be up to seeing off the equally woke Poms tomorrow Pete, no worries me old mate. It’s nailed on for an Oz-Kiwi final after the Kiwis beat India today.

  7. Peter –

    An England cricket team will always have the ability to stuff it up, but this isn’t a bad team at all. I think we’ll win.
